    Staff attentive but cold sauces then heated up in a microwave is not on ! Steak decent but def not great - loads of fries but one can only eat so many. Seems like plan is “full then with fries”

    The food was excellent but the atmosphere was bizarrely... unfinished? Tables were unlaid, which gave a bit of a café feel rather than a decent restaurant feel when we arrived. Service was... patchy. While the value of the food was very good, the wine list was really quite poor for what was being demanded. I have enjoyed Rowley's over the years and hope this is a blip as they wrestle with the cost of living crisis.

    Lovely ambience and excellent service. Good wine and food however the steak was medium/well done which was most certainly not what we’d asked for. Very hard to justify the expense of a steak restaurant like this when a better piece of meat can be cooked with greater skill at home for less.

    Great central place to meet. Mentioned, when booking, meal was for a birthday and on the house fizz to start with was a lovely touch, plus candle in chocolate desert was great service. Staff young and attentive.

    Limited menu but good. Short wine list but not bad. The chips should be real chips and not french fries!

    I have not dined at Rowleys for nearly 25 years having moved out of London, the steaks and chips were as delicious as I remembered them, the wine just as good .The staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly, the ambiance again as I remembered, nice high ceilings and plenty of space. Highly recommend to new customers and old returnees.

    Food was good, but when making the booking was told the slot was 2 hrs by opentable confirmation. When we arrived, we where told the the kitchen closed in 15mins and the restaurant in 45 mins. Felt rushed through dinner. Checked website afterwards and you really have to hunt for the opening times. Why allow a 3pm booking when the venue closes at 4pm? Very disappointed.

    We have been going to Rowleys for a long time and like its proximity to West End Theatres and some of its special features. Because of Covid we have not been for some time and were surprised by the high prices. The cheapest wine is £35 per bottle and the Service Charge is now 15%. For two of us with two courses and wine it came to £190.

    Delicious quality food that we’ve come to expect here. Service was friendly and efficient. Restaurant quieter than expected for a Friday night. Had chateaubriand for two with stunning peppercorn sauce. Bottle of wine was reasonably priced and well chilled.

    Been going here for years but this wasn’t an enjoyable experience. It was my birthday so they generously gave me and my partner a glass of fizz on the house when we arrived. We then waited nearly 40 minutes for our food to arrive and ordered the chateaubriand (£65 for 2 people) and it wasn’t seasoned at all so very bland, the Roquefort butter was also very bland. Fries are always great, but the buttered spinach was very dry, not much butter and again no seasoning. Very disappointing.

    We dined here pre-theatre. We had enough time for a starter and main meal, and the service was prompt enough to deliver with time to spare (1 1/4 hours). As we dined at 5.30 as the restaurant opened, on a Tuesday, it was pretty quiet. The prawn cocktail and Chicken parfait were excellent, but the real star was the steaks. Three of us had the Sirloin, which while not cheap, was absolutely delicious. Served on a warm platter and pre-sliced, they were really tasty and complemented with hot, fresh fries. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful restaurant with lovely ambience. Very warm and welcoming. Great, attentive service without being at all intrusive. My friend and I shared the Chataubriand, which was outstanding, as was all the food - I chose the prawn and avocado starter, my friend chose the whitebait). The wine we chose (Château Gachon Montgne St Emilion) paired beautifully with our meal.

    Booked a pre-theatre meal for my husband’s birthday. Was given a couple of complimentary glasses of Prosecco on arrival due to birthday, which was a nice touch. Place was clean and staff were lovely, the only downside was the meal. My husband had the burger and I had chicken supreme. The chicken supreme was essentially a chicken breast with half a tomato, thin fries and a garnish of rocket. Meal total was nearly £70 for a bread basket starter, a coke, burger and the chicken, all tasted ok but nothing special - nice place but far too overpriced for what it was.

    Very good, tasty and succulent steaks, cooked as per our request - to the standard and quality we had expected. Busy, fun and lively atmosphere. Staff were polite, attentive and professional. My only thought was you couldn’t help but notice the waitress team seemed slightly understaffed for the number of diners. No criticism to them as they were coping well, but you got the feeling it was extremely hectic for them to keep on top of it at times. Very good and will be back again soon.

    Very, very noisy. Hard to have a conversation. Food ok but steak was outrageously expensive and chips were tasteless skinny French fries. Service ok.
